Meet my new friend, Louisville Kentucky based architectural photographer Justin L. Jordan! Justin’s lovely work sports a cleanness and crispness that I admire.

A Behind-The-Scenes Glimpse Into How Design Within Reach Creates Images for Its Products

Behind-the-scenes content is some of the most enjoyable and informative to consume in my opinion.  I love seeing how other photographers go about their business and find this is a great way to quickly pick up new ways of working that I may be able to incorporate into my own work.

Along those lines, everyone’s favorite modern furniture distributor, Design Within Reach, created a short time-lapse film showcasing how they go about creating their product imagery from the ground up.
